Hello there,

Welcome to HCM,

Your symptoms are suggestive of ulcerations or inflammation of oral mucosa of tongue and palate.
Prozac is a antidepressant drug and will not help in resolving the problem.
Recurrent trauma to the tongue may lead to formation of ulcers or
It may be caused due to several reasons like deficiency or certain vitamins especially vitamin B12 and vitamin C.
start with multivitamin supplements for 7 to 10 days and vitamin C lozenges will help in resolving the problem.
avoid alcohol , carbonated drinks , tobacco chewing and smoking as these may worsen the area affected.
Apply oral antiseptic ,analgesic ointments like dentogel or mucogel topically over the affected area.
Maintain good oral hygiene and drink lots of water and keep yourself hydrated.

i hope this helps,
take care.
